A sense and respond application detects changes in the state of the world relevant to a user and responds proactively on the user’s behalf. A response may issue an alert or carry out a sequence of actions. Sense and respond applications (abbreviated to S&R apps) are used in many areas including defense, homeland security, finance, logistics, and manufacturing. Some personal applications, such as location-based services on mobile phones, are S&R apps since they sense a phone’s location and respond by offering appropriate services.
